Sydney's First and Best Halloween Scare Park

For the third consecutive year, Fearaphobia, Australia's number 1 Scare Attraction, returns with 3 all-new, terror-filled and blood-curdling scare experiences while last year's terrifying attractions will be packed with fresh scares and surprises.

Taking over Hawkesbury Showgrounds, Fearaphobia is Australia's first and best dedicated Scream Park and promises to scare you out of your mind this Halloween season!

Proudly presented by Showtime Amusements, Fearaphobia will transport you and your friends into a dark twisting maze with rooms populated with creatures from your worst nightmares. Your only goal will be to elude the predators who stalk you through the darkness and to be a survivor, not a victim.

Suitable for adults and older teens over 15 years, you'll come across some not so friendly ghosts and ghouls in an atmospheric and hair-raising setting.


You can choose from 7 haunting experiences;

  • Escape the Zombies: Join the crack medical team to clear our facility of rampant zombies. The zombies are loose and infected and need fresh blood to spread their contagion. Will you be their next meal in this gore fest… No one is safe.

  • The Crypt: They say that seeing is believing but the darkness of The Crypt will prove them wrong. Not for the faint-hearted.

    You won't see a thing – we promise. But this is the only sense that we will not assault on this blood-curdling journey back from The Crypt.

  • The Killing Fields: The children of the corn await your presence in this picturesque and idyllic setting – Or is it….

    Horrendous hay & mazes of monsters will ensure an experience you are not likely to forget for the rest of your life. Enter at your peril! remember: escape is optional.

  • The Doll Factory What could be cuter than a cute little dolly… You definitely won't be saying this when you have visited the Doll Factory at Fearaphobia, where our demented doll maker has created some demonic dollies who are on a mission to possess your every waking moment.

  • Evil Scream 13: Do you have triskadekaphobia or fear of the number 13? Join our cast of 13 macabre medieval monks who want to pray prey on you in this gothic maze of tombs and torture chambers. An Evil Scream or a Bad Dream, we promise this will wake you up.

  • Freakshow: A team of malevolent misfits await your every move in this frenzied maze of mind-numbing terror. Run the gauntlet of this Frightening Freakshow and you will never want to visit a circus again!

  • Buried Alive: Visit the Scare Taker and confront everyone's deepest fear on a terrifying trip to the other side. Can you survive this near-death experience and come back to life to earn YOUR death certificate?

    Each attraction was been designed by Showtime Amusements, who have been supplying rides, games and attractions nationally since 1976. Run by Lewis and Leonie Osborne, whose family has been in the amusement business for 6 generations, Showtime Amusements works to the highest standards with DRA Safety Accreditation.

    Fearaphobia is staffed by over 100 actors and a supporting cast of makeup artists and there will also be some surprise guest artists who will be haunting the scream park each night. Keep and eye on #Fearaphobiasydney for more details.

    Plus in addition to the 7 attractions, the park will be full of other Halloween entertainment to whet your appetite and get you into the spirit of things.

    There will also be prizes for the best worst dressed individual each night, so please feel free to come dressed and made up.

    Fearaphobia is an event dedicated to those who love to scream and Showtime Amusements guarantee that you will! "We will make your worst nightmares come true…"
